For this week’s video, we’re going to send you to Sean Tucker’s YouTube Channel – the whole thing - hours and hours of quality content.
Sean is a British portrait and street photographer (though he captures wonderful landscape videos as well). His beautifully created videos on YouTube are often philosophical and inspirational in their content. He is open about his own feelings and is willing to have that difficult conversation, sharing what is working well as well as challenges he has faced. His insights can be motivating, affirming and his photographs are food for the soul.
Even when he is tackling a technical aspect of photography, Sean has a way of making it about life and his personal journey as a photographer. The videos are always calming and it is as if he takes our hand and walks us through his journey in making the photograph – sometimes from the very start through the post-processing of an image.
Sean is soft-spoken and the warm background music is brings the viewer to a calm space for learning. Many of his videos are around 10-12 minutes in length. Sean includes appropriate quotes, the background music will help put you in the right frame of mind and you won’t want to miss a second of his videography.
Every video is a little gem, but if you’re new to Sean’s YouTube channel you might want to start with a few of his inspirational videos: How to be Authentic in your Creative Work, How to Become a Better Photographer through 'Visual Exercise’, and Why you get your Best Creative Ideas in the Shower are a few of my favorites.
Sean creates videos that you’ll want to watch again and again. Brew a cup of tea and spend some time relaxing into the learning from a master photographer. He’ll make you feel that he is speaking directly to you and has a genuine interest in your journey as a photographer.
